A brilliant location and ideal backpacker spot, I really enjoyed this place and appreciated the owner and staff did not give me the hard sell of tours or extras which other hotels did, although the prices quoted seemed very good. The beds are very comfortable and shockingly for downtown you do not hear the traffic in the rooms. Negative points... More

We arrived in Cairo at 6:30am but were not able to check-in until 12pm. This should have been made clear before we arrived as the hostel was aware of our flight time. Also, the hostel tried to charge us for the supposedly free airport pick-up on more than one occasion, not to mention rip us off by arranging trips for... More

Alexander hotel has a great communal area, where you have breakfast, watch TV and can watch the world from the small balcony. It is right on the road, like all the small hotels I have seen in Cairo and has a great atmosphere. Rooms adequately do the job and are clean. Much nicer than most of the hotels and hostels... More

I had wanted to visit Egypt for some time, and now was the time. Prior to my travel, I read numerous reviews and forums about properties in Cairo. I decided that I wanted to stay in the downtown core of Cairo, as I would be getting around on my own, and wanted to feel like the area I stayed in... More

I enjoyed satying in Alexander Hotel as its location, in the center of the city, enabled me from finding all what i needed easily. The shops kept opened till late night. It was safe to walk around. The place was really nice for its simplicity and calm atmosphere. I had a great experience in cairo despite the short period of... More

Please take this review with a grain of salt. I had a horrible time in Cairo, so I am not sure how objective my review of this hostel will be, but I will try. When I arrived, there were no rooms available so I had to wait, which wasn't a problem since I was early, but all the bathrooms are... More
